Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a BMP (Bitmap Image File) file and from this, create a new image saved in the PCX (Picture Exchange) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your BMP to PCX.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your BMP file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the BMP to PCX conversion has completed, you can download your PCX file straight away.
We aim to process all BMP to PCX conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features and improvements being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the BMP file you submit to us. The resulting PCX file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our BMP to PCX tool will run on any system with a modern web browser. No specialist software is needed to run any of our conversion tools.
Yes. Although you can use an Ad Blocker, if you like our BMP conversion tool please consider white-listing our site. When an Ad Blocker is enabled there are some conversion limits on some of our tools and processing/conversion times will be longer.
|Full Name||Bitmap Image File|
The BMP file format is a two dimensional image file format popular on Microsoft Windows operating systems. Data is stored in the BMP file in a raster format with pixels being represented using various colour depths ranging from monocrome 1-bit per pixel (bpp) to full color 24-bits per pixel.
The format can also contain an image alpha channel which is typically 8 bits per pixel in size and is used to describe image transparency. BMP files can also optionally be compressed using a lossless compression algorithm meaning smaller files with no loss of image quality.

The PCX file format is a legacy image file format originally released in 1985 by ZSoft Corporation. It was the native file format for the PC Paintbrush application and soon became one of the standard image formats for DOS.
The format uses an indexed palette method for storing color information and supports formats starting at 1-bit-per-pixel (bpp) through to 8-bpp, though support for 24-bit color was added later on. Image files based on the PCX format can still be found today and are supported by a limited number of modern applications.
